The Richard Huish College Netball team have started the season with a bang winning the Under 19 County Schools tournament which qualifies them for the South West Regional competition in the New Year. Hosted at Taunton School, Huish fought off tough competition to come out on top, ahead of Taunton School in 2nd and Millfield School in 3rd. Doing one better than last year, where we finished in second, this is the first time in 18 years Huish have won this competition which makes it even more rewarding.
The team, which is made up of a mixture of lower and upper sixth students, currently play in the AoC Sport Premier Netball league, where they compete against some of the best teams in the country. Cath Clark, Netball coach at Huish, said, “The success of the Huish Sport Netball team is going from strength to strength and is full credit to the hard work and effort that the girls and coaches put in week and week out.”
The netballers also benefit from the Huish Sport enrichment programme which allows students additional training sessions to develop playing netball at a high level.
